If I have quite an exhausting workout that leaves me somewhat dizzy and a bit spaced out - is it a good idea to counter the drop with pure refined sugar? is it a good time to sneak in a fanta or is this counter productive to a low carb fat loss diet?
Today I did my usual session but I have been quite strict on low carb, my "cheats" are usually nothing more than a wrap for chicken, a wholemeal toast with PB or half a pint of milk with a shake instead of water.
Its finally been catching up with me it seems, when I failed my last three reps on my standard bench press today - I then intended do 15 minutes of HIIT (1:30 rest, 30 sprint - toward the end more like 2 rest, 20-30 sprint)
but after 5 minutes into my HIIT my heart started beating uncomfortably fast and I felt a small twinge and felt a touch feint (not much, I dont tend to exaggerate/underplay in my own opinion ofc, but could tell it would get worse) so I stopped.
I've come back to my desk now feeling like the session didnt go too well and I kinda blame the diet for it, since I've not had any other lifestyle changes (I eat decent quantities of protein and fats, almost a little much for fat loss sometimes) - I'm content with the fact this diet
will have it's low parts and the kick to confidence when sets suffer a tad - my question is, do I counter these dips with fast simple carbs? or do I ride them out? - I dont want to pretend I know what im talking about by saying "its burning fat thats why im dizzy/weak" - I dont know whats going on in that dip - so I'd like someone who knows to advise me :)
